Honda’s Multipurpose ATVs and Compact Side-by-Sides Return

Pioneer 520 and 500 side-by-sides deliver impressive performance in small packages.

When it comes to four-wheel rec/utility powersports, versatility is the name of the game, and the announcement of returning Honda side-by-side and ATV models serves as a reminder of the brand’s offering of remarkably capable multipurpose offerings.

Included are Honda’s smallest side-by-sides — the Pioneer 520 and Pioneer 500 — both of which are back for the 2023 model year, touting strong performance and exceptional value. Also announced were Honda’s first unveilings of the 2024 model year: the FourTrax Foreman, Foreman Rubicon and Rancher families, each of which comprises a number of trim levels. Honda’s FourTrax lineup continues to be an industry leader for both work and play, and these ATVs are now available in new colors.

“We’re pleased to confirm the return of our Pioneer 520 and 500 side-by-sides as well as three families from our FourTrax ATV range,” said Brandon Wilson, American Honda manager of sports and experiential. “These vehicles share the ability to perform work on the ranch, farm or worksite while also being trail-ready for the weekends, embracing the do-it-all ethos of multipurpose powersports.”

2023 Pioneer 520

Purpose-built to get more done and have more fun, Honda’s Pioneer 520 is ready to check tasks off the “to-do” list. Its narrow chassis dimensions unlock access to width-restricted trails, but this little rec/utility side-by-side is far more capable than its size might suggest. Its reliable 518cc engine is up to the job, and the independent front and rear suspension ensures comfort and control across varied terrain. The dump bed handles up to 450 pounds of tools, supplies or equipment, and a wide range of available Honda Pro-Connect accessories offer additional cargo solutions for both work and play. Fun, rugged, reliable, and U.S.-designed and -manufactured, the Pioneer 520 is truly multipurpose — a great side-by-side for the family farm.

2023 Pioneer 500

2023 Honda Pioneer 500 Black Forest Green

With an ideal blend of efficient, compact design and well-rounded performance, the Pioneer 500 is a remarkably capable entry point into the world of side-by-sides: a great fit everywhere from the job site to the trailhead. Thanks to its narrow 50-inch width, this compact, multipurpose side-by-side has access to width-restricted trails, and it fits in a full-size pickup-truck bed for convenient transportation. When it comes to pulling its weight around the family farm or job site, the 450-pound-rated rear-rack and 1,000-pound towing capacity make quick work of the tasks at hand. Plus, the Pioneer 500 carries the Honda tradition of superior durability, quality and reliability — all at a great value.

2024 FourTrax Rancher

For some ATV owners, a great day in the dirt means making quick work of challenging chores on the farm. For others, it’s about exploring miles of fun trails. Honda’s FourTrax Rancher platform is ready for either, which is why it has long been the point of reference for a versatile, reliable rec/utility ATV. Available in eight different trim levels, the Rancher family is as diverse as the riders who use it, offering features including independent rear suspension; Honda’s advanced, automatic dual clutch transmission; electric power steering; and more. With a standard convenient front utility compartment and heavy-duty front and rear racks that can be customized with Honda’s Pro-Connect accessory range, the U.S.-produced Rancher platform is set to continue its reign as the benchmark multipurpose ATV.
